BISHKEK, September 16. /TASS/. Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev has warned the citizens against selling their votes at the upcoming parliamentary elections in the Central Asian republic.
"As the saying goes: people get the government they deserve," the president said at the meeting with the citizens of Isfana, in southern Kyrgyzstan’s Batken province.
"That’s why the future of the country depends on your choice as the parliament will form the new government."
If "thieves again join" the new parliament then the cabinet of ministers will also consist of "thieves" who only think about their profit, the Kyrgyz leader said. "So don’t be fooled and do not sell your votes," he told the citizens.
The president also said the voter turnout at the elections will not be as high as in previous years. This comes amid the introduction of the biometric registration, he explained.
"The voting will be conducted based on the principles of openness and transparency," Atambayev stressed.
The parliamentary elections in Kyrgyzstan on October 4 will be held for the second time in the country’s modern history on the party lists. A total of 14 political parties will fight for 120 seats in the new parliament.
All the polling stations will be equipped with special biometrical data reading devices and electronic ballot boxes, which will help avoid vote rigging, as authorities say.
